Bargain Finds


Top 10 Bargain Sources for 2015

By Suzanne O'Connor

10. 7 For All Mankind Outlet
777 S. Alameda St. @ Bay
Los Angeles, CA 90021

Validated parking lot

Wow! Talk about a great pairing of great Outlets! Located in the new, Alameda Square, the 7 For All Mankind Outlet is right next door to the Splendid / Ella Moss Outlet.

This hidden outlet is worth the effort to find. Clean and organized, it has the feel of a boutique with neatly arranged table displays, and racks full of past season’s first quality overproduction. 

Of course, you’ll find their famous jeans and pants in different cuts, prints and washes.  But you’ll also find tops, shirts, jackets and more for men, women and kids at 40%-70% below original retail.

9. Water Heater Warehouse
1853 W. Commonwealth Ave.
Fullerton, CA 92833
(714) 244-8562

Water Heater Warehouse sells only water heaters…. But sells them at 30%-40% lower than most retailers including Home Depot.

They can sell for less because they buy up the cosmetically imperfect, discontinued, open box water heaters directly from the manufacturers. Companies like Rheem, Whirlpool, Bradford White and Kenmore.

You’ll find everything here from an apartment sized 30 gallon natural gas water heater to a commercial 100 gallon water heater… all discounted at 30%-40% below retail. They deliver to all of Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire. You can even order over the phone.

8. The Joint
19 Locations
The location I regularly visit:
350 N. Glendale Ave.
Glendale, CA 91206
(818) 668-3299
Dr. Andrew Haig, chiropractor

For about 2 years I have been getting regular chiropractic adjustments at a place called the Joint in Glendale. 

Each one of these Franchised Chiropractic Clinics is individually owned with licensed chiropractors. The original idea was to offer routine chiropractic care by making it more convenient, friendly and affordable.  They’ve done just that.

The pricing is more than fair with their introductory offer of your initial exam, consultation and adjustment costing just $19. Single visits after that are $29 each or they have several plans which reduces the per visit costs. The Joint offers multiple plans that are both affordable and convenient without the hassles of insurance billing, copays, deductibles, or declined reimbursements. There are 19 locations in the Los Angeles area.

7. HD Warehouse Direct
16007 Kaplan Ave.
La Puente, CA 91744
(626) 679-2893

6. Ben Jarvis Computer and Network Repair
(512) 851-3262

Having computer issues? Then Ben Jarvis is your guy!

A lot of tech experts charges of $60-$120 an hour, have 2-hour minimum and don’t guarantee their work. But then there is Ben Jarvis who only charges $40 an hour.

Ben works on Mac, Windows and Linux and does everything from repair, network set up and custom building computers to tutoring you on computer use, applications, social media and blogs. He charges $40 an hour, with no minimum and if he can’t fix it, you’ll pay nothing! Plus all work is guaranteed. He is now our “go to” computer guy. He should be yours too!

Drum roll please! Our very best, new discount outlet from 2015 is…

1. LF Outlet
7714 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90046

The deals here are almost as good as their wickedly good Warehouse Sale…. A good 60%-80% off their original retail off of past seasons women’s cutting edge apparel.

The selection, like the Warehouse Sale is a year or so behind. But as I have always said, their designs are so cutting edge, their fashions are just as hot a year later. So you can still get current fashions at some super low pricing.

Whether you’re 14 or 84, you’ll love this new Hot Spot!
